One of the first books I ever read on entrepreneurship was The E-Myth by Michael Gerber. That book was so clear to me in understanding how to build a successful business. It spoke to the heart of the people who start small businesses - people with a passion - and how they struggle because passion doesn’t typically come married to the skills to grow a company.
The failure rate for entrepreneurs who start small businesses is high. Too high, in my opinion. And part of the reason is that entrepreneurs don’t have a road map and they get started without proper guidance or mentors. The E-Myth offers insights and introduces concepts to anticipate the obstacles and to build business with a success model in mind.
If you own a company that is struggling to grow or you're just getting started, take the time to read the E-Myth and find professionals to add to your team. Want to chat with an experienced business coach and entrepreneur? Feel free to contact us to find out if we're a good fit.
